"This is a joyous, thought-provoking delve into the link between emotions, psychology and physiology. It's a great book to provide a foundation for sustainable change rather than a quick fix and I liked that most of all. It's definitely a book I will reach for time and again and would be like having a conversation with a good friend. Very enjoyable."  -  LoveReading UK

I will undoubtedly revisit her teaching in the future."  Readers' Favorite US
